Using proxy server for falcon bms
is it possible to send and receive data over proxy server for falcon?
If you’re using a standards-compliant proxy I see no reason why this shouldn’t work. UDP might be tricky, but then again it’s just a stream of packets routed through another application. Which proxy are you planning to use?
All the best, Uwe
there is lot of proxies around, possibly the tor is most reliable one for now. i tried to use widecap and some other app i didn’t remember its name but does the same. the main problem is i cannot forward my ports directly because my isp, but some other people can, i am planing to use proxy much like a vpn. i am setting up proxy settings, it works for browsers and some other apps but not for all (including falcon). i tried with different proxies and different applications, did not able to get it work. i am also not sure about standard-compliant thing you said, you mean for protocol?
Are you on cable by any chance?
EDIT: I think I understand better what you’re trying to do now. While it’d be trivial to set something up on Linux using iptables on your local machine, I have no idea how to do this in windows. First of all you’d have to set up BMS to bind to your VPN address (maybe it already binds to all configured IP addresses on your windows system, no idea), then on the other end of the vpn connection you’d have to make sure you have proper ipv4 connectivity towards the internet and forward the required ports (2934 and 2935 for bms, two more for IVC if you plan on hosting that) to the vpn endpoint on your BMS system.
vpn solution works great. basically the thing i tried is bypassing my isp NAT system, it is working as expected. but i wonder if i can use that proxy to send data from different ip from isp assigned to me.
if there is anyone cannot forward their ports, vpn works like a charm.
